OK, first: slam the doors closed and drop the bar. How big's the entry chamber? Cobwebbed hall number one is on the left, stone hall ending in double doors is in the center and mosaic hall is on the left, yes?
Also, what do the amulet and the book look like?
Just another shadowy guy with a smart mouth and a pointy rapier.
[Currently piloting] Fargrim: short, bombastic, beardo with a mace and a mission from the gods.
Entrance chamber is 100' by 30'. The 60' wide double door you just locked is on one 100' side and the three passages are on the other side. As you move to do these thing the globes follow you overhead. You are correct that it goes cobweb, stone hall, mosaic hall.
The amulet looks like a gold disk with a closed eye on it. It defiantly feels arcane in nature.
The book has dwarven and arcane ruins on the cover. Fargrim can read the dwarven runes and that it is named Acererak's Manual of the Iron Golem.
Fargrim knows that Acererak the first Artificer was a slave of the Dragonlords in ancient. He created an army of iron golems that he forged for war and battle in secret. It was these Warforged that started the dwarven revolution against Tiamat and her spawn. The joined the revoltions of human, gnome, halfling, and elf lead by the Lords of Menelland(who are now worshipped as gods). After the war Acererak tried to use the golems to take Tiamat's former position as ruler of the world. He was beaten and spent his last centuries under heavy guard here in the Stonehome mines. Many of his most lethal inventions where buried in the Vault you now stand in. He was allowed free reign in his Vault and no Dwarf really knows the extent of all he created. After his death no one has ever entered the vault and returned.
As you seal the door you hear another round of spears and arrows clatter off the door.
Suddenly a body appears 5 feet off the floor and drops to the stone at Delrin, Fargrim, and Oloric's feet. It hits the stone and is unmoving. It is a woman naked with matted red hair that has the rounded point of halfelven ears. Her body is bruised and battered but Oloric recognizes the phoenix tattoo along the small of her back, the flames tattooed along arms and thighs. His mind fashes to Jen the fiery half elven warlock he spent a memorable night just days before. This beaten body before him is Jen.
